HUBackup In Debian

I've been recently contacted by a debian developer that wants to upload hubackup to Debian, as it could be useful for Debian users as well.

Since I am not a Debian Developer, we've agreed to compliment each other's packaging work such that hubackup will be uploaded to Debian with him as the maintainer, and I as the co-maintainer, and share and forward bug reports and upstream changes.

I also wish to make hubackup a distro agnostic product eventually, as is a first of kind attempt to solve the issue of desktop backups, and other distros should enjoy it. While this involves mostly some source cleanup and adding non Debian dependency checks, hubackup will need an upstream web site where to publish tarballs, host documentation and provide news. Since hubackup uses PyGTK and GNOME, I wonder if it could be adopted by it and hosted there? I'll have to see about that.
